Kreyos video demos the Windows Phone app for their Meteor smartwatch

Smartwatches are all the rage this year, and Windows Phone is on the cusp of a big push into the connected wearables. Numerous companies are expected to announce official apps for syncing between Windows Phone and their watches starting later this summer.

Kreyos and their Meteor activity watch are already on the market, and it is no secret they have a Windows Phone app in the works. The app is near completion, and the Kreyos team is now showing the app in action through a brief video.

Windows Phone users can have access to their profile, activity stats, sports mode, daily target and watch settings, including updating its firmware.

Windows Phone 8.1 supports an improved Bluetooth 4.0 LE, enabling developers to create apps for their connected devices. However, those running the Preview for Developers edition of Windows Phone 8.1 have Bluetooth LE disabled, requiring the new firmware from phone manufacturers e.g. Lumia Cyan. Once more phones come online with support, Windows Phone users should see Microsoft announce many new apps to take advantage of the technology.
